The world-renowned British breed of Hereford cattle

By ruiiid5

There are now more than five million animals worldwide that are classified as purebred Herefordshire Cattle. The export of this highly desirable breed started as long ago as 1817 when several quality animals went across to Kentucky.  The popularity of the hardy Hereford cattle grew quickly and they soon became a normal sight for visitors to the United States, Canada, Mexico, and South America.  Now in 2023 there are Herefordshire Cattle in Australasia, Russia, Japan, Israel, Argentina, Chile and New Zealand.  Keeping accurate and thorough records of every calf that has been born to prove they are descended from the original Hereford Bull and Cow is imperative.  With the average cost to buy a high-quality purebred bull priced at £4,500 and a breeding Cow approximately £1,300 it’s clear to see why proper records need to be kept.
